  • Introduction
High in the skies of western China, a giant eagle soars above the rugged landscape. As it spots a tiny wild rabbit, it swoops down at 300 kilometers per hour to grasp the hapless creature with its mighty claws. Itthen flies back to its master, and releases its prey. Macan has practiced falconry all his life. For over 1,500 years, the ethnic Kyrgyz have hunted like this on the vast land of Xinjiang along the ancient silk road. This tradition has been passed on from father to son, generation after generation. But due to rapid development and changing lifestyles, this custom is dying. As one of the last eagle trainers amongst his people, Macan teaches his son in an attempt to uphold the ancient way of life. 金雕是一种猛禽。它们生活在新疆维吾尔自治区的高原地带,当地的柯尔克孜族人把那里称作别尔库特山。柯尔克孜族的鹰猎文化历史悠久,他们会把幼年或成年金雕抓来抚养, 把它们训练成出色的捕猎者。柯尔克孜族老人马坎与金雕有着不解之缘。
